I'm a self taught developer who had worked with computers for the last 15 years,mostly as a SysAdmin/SysOps/SRE and for the last 4 years as a Python Developer at Satellogic.
I have always been a proactive person, mostly self-taught, but I have taken several courses. I love to work with and in Free Software projects. GNU/Linux is my favorite platform but I also have a lot of experience in Wintel ones.
I love taking pictures, traveling and camping.
You can usually reach me in Freenode as gilgamezh.

IAFE, Buenos Aires — HPC Cluster Manager
APR 2014 - JUL 2015
I was the manager of the Fenix Cluster of the Numerical Astrophysics Group in the Institute of Astronomy and Space Physics..
It is a Beowulf cluster running the Rocks Linux distro used to run heavy numeric simulations.
For me it was a big challenge because of the high performance computing in a GNU/Linux platform.
I also think that the Astrophysics Group aim is very important for human beings, so it was a double reward for me.
